Drinking Dr Loosen Wines DR L 2008 Riesling

If you follow me on twitter, you know I’ve been talking up Dr Loosen Wines Dr L 2008 Riesling this week.  It’s not because they promised to feature me on their blog, and it’s not because I owe them anything. I’ve paid for the 3 bottles of this sweeter white wine that I drank this…
